Introduktion till GreenScreen for Safer Chemicals

I del 2 av vår presentationsserie från Sustainable IT Summit ger Dr. Mark Rossi från den USA-baserade Clean Production Action oss en överblick av GreenScreen™ for Safer Chemicals. GreenScreen är ett viktigt verktyg för att bedöma hälso- och säkerhetsriskerna kring olika kemiska substanser, inklusive de icke halogenbaserade flamskyddsmedel som finns i TCO Certified produkter.

Av de tusentals olika kemikalierna som används i kommersiellt bruk, så har ungefär bara 1 % någonsin gått igenom någon sort testning för att utvärdera den effekt de har på människan och miljön.

Den här veckan publicerar vi video från tre presentationer under Sustainable IT Summit. Vi tillgängliggör också PDF-versioner av de Powerpoint-presentationer som användes.

Part 2. Introduction to GreenScreen for Safer Chemicals

Dr. Mark Rossi from US-based Clean Production Action provides an overview of GreenScreen for Safer Chemicals.

GreenScreen offers an objective, scientific way of determining these effects , and as part of TCO Certified , excluding the most hazardous substances from certified products.

“Of the 84,000 chemicals on the market today — many of which are in objects that people come into contact with every day — only about 1 percent of them have been studied for safety”
US Senator Frank Lautenberg, 2015
Take advantage of this expert knowledge in your sustainable IT planning. Purchasers, this is also a good time to review your IT Hardware contracts to include language that requests products that meet “the latest version of TCO Certified”. This way you can be sure the products you buy meet the New Generation TCO Certified, including the most updated sustainability criteria, backed up by third party verification.
